OPINION: The topic is init scripts. The part of a computer that determines what starts first and next and next etc. Most of my readers, and I thank you both, will want to close this tab in your browser and come back on a non-geeky day.
System Init. – Do you need your keyboard before your monitor? Nah, we’ll bring up the monitor before the keyboard.. And yet we have bigger issues like when to initialize the CPU, RAM, HDs, USVs peripherals, etc.
So I was udating my automatic services in Windows… oh wait, no it was in Linux on 14.04.3 and everything kept telling me the same thing.

The following is a repost of a fb post by Houston’s own Andrew Rebman. A photographer, gentleman, generous, observant, kind, and welcoming soul. He truly loved Houston and will be missed by us all, including many who don’t even know he is the man behind so many photos they have seen.
At 42, we lost him far too young.
“I shambled after as I’ve been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!'”
His facebook page is now a tribute page and the chron has his obituary up. That’s all we know right now. The following is from FB and the chron.
